August 29/New York/Associated Press -- Beverage company Jones Soda Co. said chief financial officer Michael O'Brien has resigned in order to work for a privately held coffee company.

Jones Soda said it is currently searching for a replacement to fill the CFO role. O'Brien will help with the transition period for two weeks. It did not identify the coffee company that O'Brien plans to join.

Jones Soda, based in Seattle, makes drinks including Jones Soda and Jones Pure Cane Soda. In June, the company said it was relocating its headquarters from Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood to a bigger office space in the city's Pioneer Square historical district.
